Description of the Flag

Ngaraard (former Kerradel) State, just (summer 2004) changed its flag. It is made of a golden-yellow star on a field of deep sky blue background. Behind the star, it has red stripe from the bottom left corner and to upright to the upper right corner of the flag. The star stands for the unity of Ngaraard State, and the five fingers of the star stands the five counties or hamlets of Ngaraard (Choll, Elab, Ngebuked, Ulimang and Ngkeklau). The stripe of the flag shows that the state has both the east and west coast of northern Babeldaob and is striving for success. The blue background symbolizes the blue of the sky and ocean surrounding the Ngaraard State.

According to the census Kayangel has an area of 36 sq. km, a population of 421 inhabitants, and the capital is Ngermechau.
